Interesting question,  I wanted to monitor it, but did a search.  It looks like there are bunch of pay software for controlling access to the control panel.  

You can also setup the group policy to prevent access to the control as well.

If you are in an Active Directory environment, you can use Group Policy to restrict access to the Control Panel, as described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325852

Hello!,
        You can deny access to the Control Panel for normal users by simply enabling the following group policy.

Local Computer Policy--> User Configuration--> Prohibit access to the control panel

This setting will also prevent users from running any control panels and will also remove the Control Panel from the start menu and from windows explorer
